    i have the very same problem, it seems as though this began after a recent update, though there may be an update fix for this by now, so i'll check again when i get home (haven't used the unit for a while now, partially due to the connection problems with my phone for hands free operation).

    my phone connects via bluetooth fine with other phones and my laptop btw.

Pairing tomtom 630. it connects and works 1 time then tomtom complains about phone not responding. i did connect and after this i authorized it should work. tried with different nokia 5800 same problem....

Some mobiles require you to confirm each connection by responding to a message on the phone screen. My older Samsung phone did the same thing if I didn't hit the "accept" on the phone at the right time. My newer phone does it automatically, but it has a setting to disable the automatic connection. You might want to look at your bluetooth options on the phone for the tomtom connection and see if there is an automatic connection option.

If this helps, please rate, if not, please clarify so I can do some more research.

    Can't connect my mobile phone to TomTom

    Since the phone worked before the visibility issue is unlikely to be the cause. Try plugging your TomTom into your computer. In the my tomtom software, select manage my TomTom. Now find and select the item about mobile phone settings and delete it. That should fix the problem when you next ask the TomTom to set up a connection with your phone.

    Go 710

    Hook the Tomtom using the USB cable to your computer. You should see the Tomtom drive under My Computer as a drive letter.

    Backup all data from the Tomtom to a folder on your computer. Now select the Tomtom drive and right click, select properties, select tools, and then Check now. Allow the computer to fix any problems with the Tomtom drive. Once this is completed. Remove the USB cable and do a reset. Now turn on your Tomtom and it should work.
